Caller: Smart Health Australia
I've done a little research into this company. For a commission, Smart Health Australia raise money for organisations that only meet the ATO's criteria for being Not-For-Profit, therefore bypassing the Do Not Call rule for unsolicited residential contact. Since this company was working on behalf of several charities is the reason that they have so many phone numbers they are able to use to invade our privacy. I'm probably way off but I have been contacted by & I've also blocked 18 numbers that are registered to Smart Health Australia, but I am absolutely certain they have a large amount more. I've often wondered why they attempt to contact me so often & use a different number to call from each time & use a different charity each time. I've had the unfortunate luck of being struck down with respiratory failure twice, it's like having a heart attack but it was my lungs that were affected. Each time the ICU doctors in my local hospital deemed it essential for me to be flown down to a major hospital in Brisbane & I was flown down by the RACQ Careflight helicopter. Anyway the reason for this long winded story was that a little while after each time I was flown down to Brisbane in the RACQ Careflight helicopter, RACQ Careflight called. Each time they called my mother took the call & feeling quite grateful that RACQ Careflight were able to assist me, she bought what they were offering each time. Which brings me to my second point of being contacted so many times by so many different numbers. Once the company realise a residence has blocked a certain number, I think they have a computer program that either informs the employee to use a different line or it does it automatically & said program informs the employee who to say they are calling from. Smart Health Australia is a parasite that is practically impossible to get rid of is my experience.
I called back number (03) 8595 9840 was put on hold music but no one answered the call. The won’t stop freaking ringing me and I tell them to f*ck off but they keep calling Get yourself a Telstra Call Guardian phone (no need to be on Telstra) I didnt answer based on previous comments Caller: Ann Fitzgerald

Caller: Ann Fitzgerald
Raising money for charity. I wasnt interested
Caller: Charity of some sort where the name is very difficult to understand
These people are becoming a menace. I get called on average about 2 x a day. Usually when I am at work. Like you say, they are barely meeting the criteria for a Not for Profit. I keep blocking them, but they keep calling on different number. They get around the Do Not Call and the interruptions are becoming annoying.
I picked up and gave my name, but there was no answer. After a few seconds I gave my name again but still no answer so I hung up. no message=blocked number Caller: Ann Fitzgerald was the name given by the caller
Don't know what the caller was calling about because, as soon as she said the word "fundraising", I hung up.
